About the Artist RWB Journal

My work is informed by my personal faith, sense of vulnerability, bereavement, and, my personal experience.

My practice centres on addressing social justice issues of the human condition. I avoid making work of any individual person; so that neither, is the individual stigmatised, nor is the work unduly personalised.

Since January 2012 I have used this blog as part of my reflective journal.
Included in this journal is some of my documentation of my research; the underlined text provides links to web pages etc that have formed part of my research.
The Research Visits category includes some responses to gallery visits.

Pop Up Show - Tomorrow

Art Practice -Work In ProgressPosted by Richard Fri, January 25, 2013 13:32:10
It has been exciting to work on this show; making decisions about work and installation and taking into account the location [Landseer Road Methodist Church and Schoolroom].

It has satisfying to spend time working out the installation and ascertaining the most apposite works for the event.

[The show is part of the weekend events for Poverty & Homelessness Action Week and although the show is on Saturday morning the works will remain on view for the Sunday morning service which is also focussing on homelessness. On Saturday morning there will also be hot drinks available, for a voluntary donation to the Ipswich Winter Night Shelter (IWNS) and the opportunity to donate new adult socks and toiletries for the IWNS (any surplus will be forwarded to the Ipswich Umbrella Trust).]

Yesterday it was good to make a number of reprints for exhibition at the show.

Here is a selection of the works that will be in the show:

From Paradise Part 2 (2010):

From The Royal Estate (2011):

From Assimilation 2 (2012):

In addition some video works will also be shown.
